Fodor's Review

Beer-battered onion rings, fresh hand-cut fries, and fried pickles have taken Dominical by storm at this casual, alfresco kiosk in the recently renovated Pueblo del Río complex on the riverfront. The fish tacos are outstanding—crispy beer-battered fish fillets accompanied by avocado slices, red cabbage, and a spicy sauce are folded into a thin, soft tortilla. You can substitute fried shrimp or go vegetarian with black beans and vegetables or spicy tofu. The tortillas even come in a gluten-free version. Ultra-healthy grilled fish and vegetables are also on the menu, along with less healthy but delicious classic fish-and-chips. Beer, sodas, and fruit smoothies wash it all down. Seating is at wooden benches and tables—or hammocks for the really laid-back—on a covered wood patio.
